. but wealthy people obviously donate a lot. mitt romney was a classic example gave away millions and millions of dollars. >> host: what are the objections that benefit the upper income like special low rates for capital gains, dividends, other things that particularly benefit wealthier income? >> guest: the capital gains and dividends break is a classic greek that benefits the very wealthy. if they receive more than 90% of the benefit, certainly people in the middle-class get a little benefit from that break, but overwhelmingly the majority of that goes to the wealthy. >> host: political has history with this tax loopholes alone can't solve the fiscal cliff, even if you dump in the vaguest tax loopholes, they don't come close to closing the deficit. at best the top 10: $834 million a year. john mckinnon, how significant are deductions when we look at their role in the big picture of solving the so-called fiscal cliff? >> guest: they can be really important. the goal is not to get rid of the budget deficit. i don't think anyone who's involved in this process has a realistic hope of getting rid

it in the house races, and of course president obama and candidate governor romney discussed it again and again. my friend talks about a consensus. let me tell you the consensus. more than 60% of the people agree with president obama and the democrats that we ought to climb down off this fiscal cliff in the next five minutes and pass what the senate passed, which is to renew all the bush tax cuts and go back for those over 250,000 to the rates of bill clinton. that's what we passed here. that will bring us almost a trillion dollars over ten years. that will get us to climb down that cliff. then we have got other parts of the cliff, there's no question about it, the automatic sequester. i think it's easy to deal with that by bringing home some of the overseas account money and applying it to the sequester and getting rid of at least half of that sequester, maybe all of the sequester. but no, you're going to listen to these speeches every day about how we're obsessed with taxes. what are you talking about, obsessed with taxes? i'll tell you what i'm obsessed about. i'm obsessed with the fact that

years and what they wanted to create again with governor romney. so, mr. president, i'd be happy to take a look at the proposal that the president -- that my friend, the republican leader, has shown us. if we can come up with something like we did when they created this other furor by refusing to increase the debt where we had an ability to come here and have a couple of votes to determine if we were going to increase it, if that's what they want to do again, i'd be happy to seriously take a look at that and report to the white house and my caucus. but until then, i object. mr. mcconnell: mr. president? the presiding officer: objection having been heard. mr. mcconnell: mr. president? the presiding officer: the minority leader. mr. mcconnell: my friend the majority leader indicates there is some confusion about who is the quarterback on the republican side. that is of course quite common when you don't have the white house. but there's no doubt about who the quarterback is on the democratic side. the quarterback on the democratic side is the president of the united states. and, unfortunat

. for the presidency, for a race that was supposed to be president romney's, according to his people, was president obama's mainly because president obama stood up for the middle class and said, when it comes to taxes, we all have to pay our fair share; no more, no less. so when you tell your friends that the president wants to give you your tax cut, you should tell them also it's being held up by the republicans in congress who are sitting on a bill that passed july 25, 2012. 98% of the american people will get their tax break continued, and only income over $250,000 will be taxed at the same rates when bill clinton was president. let's take a look back at those days. were they harsh for people? no. we had more millionaires created, i remember, in those days than we had in generations. you know why? because when the middle class is strong and he invested in the middle class, he invested in our people, they get good jobs, they pay enough taxes, they go to the mall, they make -- they take a trip across the country to see all the great landmarks, and people across this country who have businesses do

about the ryan plan, and just like we saw in the romney plan, when you're talking about simply closing loopholes and ending deductions, either the math doesn't add up or the middle class ends up bearing the entire burden. republicans are tying themselves up in knots to avoid the obvious. easiest way to raise revenue from the wealthiest americans is simply to allow the bush tax cuts for the top 2% to expire as scheduled. that's what the democrats want. it's what the american people support. and it would move us a long way towards balanced and bipartisan dealing we're all working to get to. mr. president, my colleague in the house of representatives, minority leader pelosi, is circulating a discharge petition to bring the senate bill to the house floor. i strongly support this move and i urge house republicans to sign on and allow this legislation to come to the floor for a vote. mr. president, democrats have proven we are willing to make the tough compromises, that a balanced and bipartisan deal will require. and we've been very clear we will not allow republicans to push through a bad
